    Funny you mention this. I feel something in my left heel as well. Not the right, only the left. It's started to get more noticeable as they break in. I never knew what it was but I felt it more than normal yesterday on an hour long hike in the snow.

    You can always check out the many many pages of discussion in this thread on this very topic. Or I made a crappy diagram because I got tired of this same question over and over again.

    Thank you all for your input, I greatly appreciate it. Regarding the 1035 last used for the smoke reverse kudu, where would that last fall in Meso's diagram? Btw, the diagram helped substantially. Thank you!

    The 1035 is just roomier/rounder in the toe.
    Otherwise still fits the same around the heel. It's the closest fitting last to the 2030.

    I have the Black Alden Indy boot, which fits pretty well in a size 7.5 US.

    Thanks, I believe I will be purchasing the Service Boot in a size 7 directly from Viberg. My thoughts being that if the boots are too small I can exchange for a .5 size larger.

    IMHO it's a risk, but may work out if you have a narrow, low volume foot.

    meso, what would you suggest, as far as sizing and ordering? I can be impulsive, so a voice of reason would be appreciated. I have no way of trying them on before purchasing and figured I'd have to jump right in.

    Also, by risk, do you mean with being unable to get the right size? Or returning? Or both?

    Thanks.
    Mat

    I just mean risk of not getting size right. If you can return it's not a big deal.

    Differences of opinion exist here. I find same as Barrie to be appropriate for 2030.

    Any smaller hurt my foot on the vamp, overall width and heel. But I have a wider foot and tend to wear thicker socks.

    Thanks for the input, I greatly appreciate it. I am going to think about it for the day before ordering.

    Any idea how long it usually takes to receive boots when ordering directly from Viberg.com? I am leaving for New Zealand Jan. 3rd and was hoping to have these for the trip.

    I would also get a 7.5 like meso recommended if you wear a 7.5 in Alden Indys.

    In the two times I've ordered direct it's taken < 1 week.

    Thanks gents ... I am so confused ... lol

    I've read about a lot of guys on this forum who have ordered size 7.5, and to me that seems odd. I am the only person that I know who regularly wears a size 7.5. Because of this l assumed I would need the smallest size offered.
